Klay Thompson made 5-of-18 from the field for 13 points with seven rebounds, three assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Celtics on Thursday.
His first 51 treys were assisted to start this year, but he finally hit one on his own as he brought the ball up in the first half -- he had 13 pullup makes before tonight. He actually missed more 3-pointers tonight than in any other game this season, but he hit the biggest shot for the Warriors in the fourth. Thompson is what he is in fantasy. Nov 16 - 10:51 PM

Klay Thompson hit just 5-of-15 shots and 3-of-8 3-pointers for 13 points, six rebounds, two assists, a steal and two blocks in Monday's 97-80 win over the Heat.

Thompson says he wants to block at least a shot per game, which is thrilling news for his fantasy owners. He had two tonight and 11 of them on the season, good for 1.0 blocks per game. He's only had three games without a blocked shots thus far and now that he's focusing on them, he could easily average 1.0 per game without too much effort, while still scoring at will, knocking down a ton of 3-pointers, and getting respectable rebounds, assists and steals.

Klay Thompson scored a game-high 27 points with three rebounds, two assists, one block and five 3-pointers during a 112-92 win over the Spurs on Thursday.

The Warriors looked like they were in for a rough night and even fell behind by 19 points in the first quarter, but they were able to pull out their 16th win when trailing by 15 or more in their last four seasons. Thompson also had another big block on LaMarcus Aldridge in this game and he's on pace for a career-high 1.0 per game this season. He's also been ridiculously efficient with a career-high 64.3 TS%. Thompson has been a second-round player so far and he's not sacrificing again this year.

The Warriors blew a 14-point lead at home on Sunday, despite Klay Thompson scoring a game-high 29 points on 12-of-19 shooting with four 3-pointers, two rebounds and two steals.

Golden State shot 57.1 percent tonight, and they outscored Detroit in transition 22-10, but they were undone by a series of bad plays down the stretch. Nevertheless, Klay's fantasy owners have no grounds for complaint. Steve Kerr said he'd been the Warriors' "most consistent player through six games," and he's now made at least one 3-pointer in 61 straight games, which is the 11th-longest streak in NBA history.

Klay Thompson posted 23 points with four rebounds and two assists across 29 minutes in Friday's road win against the Pelicans.

Thompson connected on 9-of-14 field goal attempts, including 5-of-8 from behind the arc. He was much more efficient and productive than he was in the opener against Houston. He had a quiet preseason but remains an obvious must-start in all fantasy formats.

Klay Thompson hit 6-of-14 shots and 4-of-7 3-pointers for 16 points, six rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks in Tuesday's season-opening loss to the Rockets on ring night in Oakland..

Thompson played well but the Rockets went on a 10-3 run to close out the game and it didn't help that Draymond Green was in the locker room with a strained left knee. Thompson played well, but was far from a beast. He'll pick up his game soon enough, so just be patient with him. Klay was on fire in the first half, but cooled off after the break.
Oct 18 - 1:41 AM

Klay Thompson dropped 28 points and hit eight 3-pointers vs. the Wolves on Sunday morning.

China Klay was firing on all cylinders and finished 10-of-16 from the field with five assists, two rebounds and one steal. Thompson was expected to lose touches playing beside Kevin Durant last season, but his field goal attempts were actually a bit higher. After a quiet postseason, Thompson is flying under the radar a bit these days.
Oct 8 - 10:36 AM

Klay Thompson said he might be willing to take a discount when he becomes a free agent to help keep the Warriors together.

Thompson won't hit free agency until the summer of 2019, so we're still a long way from the Warriors being faced with difficult financial decisions. Until then, Golden State remains the odds-on favorites to win the title. As a reminder, the Warriors went 31-2 and over the final three months of the 2016-17 season, including a 16-1 record in the playoffs.

Klay Thompson scored 10 points with one rebound, two assists, two steals and no turnovers against the Nuggets on Saturday.

Coach Steve Kerr talked up Thompson more than most of his players at training camp, saying he is fantastic off the ball -- this isn't breaking news, of course. China Klay was a fun offseason story, but expect him to get back to business as GSW's best perimeter defender and knockdown shooter. He's worth a look in the early middle rounds of drafts.
Sep 30 - 11:05 PM

Klay Thompson lit up the Cavs on Wednesday for 30 points on 11-of-18 field goals, hitting six 3-pointers with six rebounds, two assists and just one turnover in 41 minutes.

Thompson notched 16 points in the first quarter alone tonight, all while playing terrific defense, and he helped the Warriors set new Finals records for most 3-pointers in a quarter (seven) and a half (12). They were aided by solid play from reserves David West (seven points on 3-of-3 FGs in 11 minutes), Shaun Livingston (six points in 12 minutes), and usual suspect Andre Iguodala (seven points, five boards, five assists, four steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes).

Klay Thompson scored 22 points on 8-of-12 shooting during Sunday's Game 2 victory, hitting 4-of-7 threes with seven rebounds and one assist in 37 minutes.

Klay went 3-of-16 from the field in Game 1 and his shot has been off throughout the playoffs (33.8 percent), but he found the range tonight. His defense has been an unheralded part of Golden State's historic postseason run, and he was effective again tonight -- Kyrie Irving scored 19 points on 23 shots, while J.R. Smith went scoreless. The last thing Cleveland wants is for Klay to find his groove offensively.
Jun 4 - 10:55 PM

Draymond Green said he's not worried about Klay Thompson's shooting slump because he's been defending at a high level.

"We have enough guys who can score on this team that if one guy can't get it going, we can go other places," Green said. "Then our ball movement and our flow allows everyone else to get baskets as well. We're not just going to say, 'Oh, man, we really need to get Klay going.'" Cavaliers players shot 1-of-12 with Thompson as the primary defender in Game 1, so that more than made up for his poor shooting performance -- he had just six points on 3-of-16 field goals.

Klay Thompson made 3-of-16 from the field for six points with three rebounds, four assists and one steal in 36 minutes against the Cavs in a Game 1 win on Thursday.

He started on Kyrie Irving during this game and once again Thompson continues to play exceptional defense. Even before the game, coach Mike Brown was singing Klay's praises. Brown has called Klay "a monster" during the Spurs series and he's already off to that kind of defensive impact so far. Brown also really talked up Klay for his defense on Kyrie Irving tonight. Don't let the stat line fool you: Klay had a good game.
Jun 1 - 11:55 PM

Klay Thompson said he thinks about the 2016 NBA Finals every day.

"I always thought about it. We were so close last year … a game away," Thompson said. "I would be lying to you if I didn’t think about it all the time." The Warriors haven't had a 3-1 lead since last year, but all of NBA Twitter will be ready for the jokes if the Warriors have another 3-1 lead next month. As for Thompson, his usage rate in the playoffs has dropped to just 21.0, which is down from 26.2 in the regular season.
May 25 - 4:18 PM

Klay Thompson's struggles continued in Monday's Game 4 win over the Spurs, scoring 10 points on 3-of-13 shooting.

He grabbed six rebounds with one assist and one triple in 34 minutes. Thompson hasn't been himself in the postseason with averages of 14.4 points on 38.3 percent shooting, a far cry from his regular season scoring average of 22.3 points on 46.8 percent shooting. With nine days off until the NBA Finals, Thompson's struggles will be a major talking point with a potential matchup with the Cavaliers looming.
